Frequently Asked Questions:

Booking / Cancellation Policy

Payments and cancellation policy

        Use our website to book online at the best price.  You can also contact Doug to get him to make the booking.  You   receive a booking invoice, requesting a 20% down-payment.  By paying this money you agree to the following terms:

        Your booking is confirmed, and the chalet shall be made available for your arrival (from 4pm) on arrival date.  The remaining 80% is to be paid a minimum of 6 weeks prior to arrival. If it is not paid, the booking is deemed void.  

        In the event of cancellation by the host, in normal cases, the full amount is to be returned to the guest.  In the event of cancellation by the guest, the deposit can be kept by the host. If the cancellation is within 6 weeks of arrival (after having received the full amount), then it remains the decision of the host as to whether any of these monies are to be returned.

       Note: I have written the above  to protect myself from hoax bookings - but truth be told, in 10 years of running DMG I have never once even withheld a 20% deposit from a cancelling guest!   I have always given the money back or found dates where it does work for everyone.  I'm fair because I know that my guests want to come, and will  come if they can!

      All I ask for in return is that the guest informs me as soon as they are thinking of cancelling  so that we can run through options and it gives me the best chance of finding new guests if the cancellation happens.  I'm a 'solutions guy' - we will find something that works out!

Travel Tips

Which airports / airlines / transfers?

  • Easyjet fly to Innsbruck

  • Ryanair to Munich & Memmingen

  •  Use:  google flights /

  • Four Seasons are also a good option - they  charge €52 pp for  their service

  • have cheap, direct buses from Munich Airport to Fulpmes!

Best time to come?

  • Year Round!

  • We have long, hot summers (20-35'C from May to end of Sept!)

  • Full winter is start of December to April

  • Spring & Autumn is the best time to ski the glacier & still do some summer activities... best of both worlds

Chalet Bookings / Payments

Must I pay for the whole chalet?

      No -  each apartment can be booked individually.   If you have more than 8 people, then you would need to book 2    apartments.  If you book all 3, you'd have the whole of DMG to yourselves.

Minimum Stay?

        7 nights in Winter & Peak Season

        2 nights in Summer

Exceptions  can be made, so do still ask.


        Similar in all seasons:    Approx €49 per person per night (assuming full capacity)


Who's Doug?

          I started DMG   
10 years ago (when I
was 26) after   having
skied   all over the
world, earning money
from many different means (including some    comically questionable ones!).      I have  explored   over 80 countries  and I built DMG thinking of my favourite places and most memorable times.

        I first ran a ski chalet at the tender age of 18, and thought to myself "One day...  I'll be the guy who owns the    chalet and pays these young whippersnappers peanuts to do the dirty work!"  Well, 8 years later I wrote a business plan & actually made it happen!

          A decade  on from that  , and I've totally renovated the banged up, old fun-house; increased its size in all directions, and got 3 wonderful apartments in which my guests continue to have unforgettable times!

          It has been a labour of love.  Blood has been shed countless times on countless 16 hour shifts while myself and many friends over the years have strived to learn all trades in order to make this possible.  Thankfully I still have all my fingers, and still enjoy building and working on Doug's Mountain Getaway.  I am still a long way from losing my passion & desire for improving it further, so those that come back year after year get to appreciate all these changes with me.

Who has helped?
        If you've seen the My House video, you'll have seen all the helpers,  friends and family  who have made this place possible.  In particular my mum for  her support &  for believing in my idea, and Jamie for being there when I've really needed him and  for all his hours of effort and motivation he's given me!

Exclusive Chalet... or Hostel?!

So which is it?!

           DMG was Austria's highest rated hostel since the year we  opened it.    We never dropped below a 98% rating  from many hundred reviews.  It was actually the highest rated hostel in all  German -speaking countries for 5 years.

              Needless to say, a   lot   of happy, fun times were had here.  Romances & relationships were born - never to end.  DMG tattoos were inked; people are married now who met here.  Memories will never be forgotten.  

                 2018 was a big year for me.   Due to a number of reasons, I closed the hostel, took out a huge  bank loan,  renovated the old metalworks into something beautiful, and set to work on the old DMG too, by    upgrading, revamping, replacing and  generally sprucing up the place, ready for its new target audience -  family groups / friends. 

How 'private' is it?

              There are two front doors next to one another.   The grey is for the 'Ground Floor Luxury' and the white one leads upstairs to 'Funky First Floor' and 'The Penthouse' - both of which (of course)  have lockable inner front doors .  You will get the key(s) to your apartment(s) from the lockbox on the wall next to the door.  

                If you rent one apartment, you get your own floor with all your private features  entirely to yourselves.  As with regular hotels, there are also shared facilities.  At DMG, there are 3 shared rooms:  The Garden;  the Sauna Room and the Pool / Climbing Room.  If a family has rented  another apartment, then you may share these with them   and  if you're super lucky, Doug  + friends / family may also make an appearance (although he'll make sure to give you priority).
